Columbia, S. C., October 17, 1866.
Tin- Life ?.r ii State.
The Neu York Journal <>/ Com
mme, under this caption, hus the fol?
lowing forcible remarks:
Will any sincere believer in the I
propriety of tho position assumed by
('o? i gross towards the Southern States
undertake to give himself, not us. a
clear explanation of the present po?
sition of what is culled West Virginia
in the American Union? How cunio
New York to be equally matched in
the United States Senate by two
Senators representing a new State
within the boundaries of old Virginia?
If secession and rebellion deprived
Virginia of her locality in the Union, j
of her representation, or right (d' 1
representation in the councils of the !
nation, how could she give that con- j
sent which, hy the Constitution, was ;
necessary to the erection of a new ?
State within her boundaries?
No better illustration could lie need?
ed than this, of the inconsistency of i
the radical politicians. Virginia was j
regarded as a State for all their pur- '
poses, but is regarded as no State
when they have another purpose to
carry out. She certainly is no moro !
out of the Union now than she was ?
in the time of war, when Southern
armies held her Northern frontier, if .
the policy of Congress is to be made j
the law of the laud, does it not fol- 1
low, as a matter of coarse, that, the I
State of West Virginia vanished out j
of existence? How can terms of re- ;
admission to th? Union, extra-consti?
tutional, bo imposed on Virginia,
without treating her as a unit from
the hour of her pretended secession?
How can she bc kept out of the Union
as "a rebel State," without keeping
her all out? The only possible an?
swer is revolutionary. Some of the
more violent radicals acknowledge
that West Virginia exists only hythe
effect of revolutionary measures, both
in that State and in Congres'-, (hie
Senator distinctly declared that he
voted for the admission of West Vir?
ginia, knowing it, to be unconstitu?
tional, because the Constitution was
suspended by the war, and all things
were in a revolutionary condition.
But cveu that bold plea for radical
legislation was denied by the majority
of the radical leaders, and there is no ,
pretence for it now. All is peace, [
and the Constitution is the only law
on which Congress rests for any of its
powers. Is Virginia dead because '
the war is ended? Has she ceased to j
bc a State because the Southern Con- I
federacy is a thing of the past?
In the haste with which men follow
political leaders, they forget the in?
jury done to great principles on which ?
the Union rests. It is time to regard :
law and establish its supremacy over
all the lund, it is of vast importance
to the North that thc supremacy of i
the Constitution as it is should be
once more assured, and that without 1
delay. We drift along from one grand
error 1'.) another, and are rapidly ,
losing sight of the only safe anchor- j
age for thc ship of State. Inconsist?
encies mark the whole course of the i
radical politics. It is not law, but j
mad desire for success and power, ,
which seems to guide the course of '
those who so foolishly accuse the
President of "usurpation," while I
tliey advocate nothing but usurpa- :
The late reform demonstration at :
Manchester, England, was a "monster ?
meeting" affair. Mr. Bright made a j
very able speech. Ho was severely ;
personal to Lord Herby with regard
to his political career, and asserted
that if the people of Old England i
were drunken, ignorant, demoralized,
and unfit to be intrusted with the fran- j
chise, as alleged by tlie governing '
class, they had become so from the ;
effects of an aristocratic rule which ;
controlled all the powers of the State ?
for centuries; for the people of the ?
same stock were moral, educated,
happy and exercising the franchise in !
New England, under another form of
Trousers arc to be actually and !
positively worn by ladies, not exactly ?
a lu Bloomer, but to avoid the ex
posure consequent on the uso of ?
tilters. These trousers will be worn I
with lastics at the ankles, not the '
knees, a la Turque. They are to be
niado of taffeta, the same shade as
the short under petticoats.
Pacts vs. Theories.
"(?-ive mo a placo to rest my lover :
on," said Archimedes, "and I. will j
move thc world.'.' "Give mo pare and 1
unadulterated drugs,"said Medicus, j
of the olden time, "and T will cure
In one sense, both of these learned
pundits wove the veriest charlatans.
They knew there was no place to rest
their lever on. either to move the
world or euro disease. Mechanism
was in a backward state, and the me?
dical profession was but another name
for sorcery, ..?.ul all the adjuncts of
magic tilters and charms of the "evil
But these: latter days have borne
unto us something, more than even
superstitntion and its crew ever
dreamt of in their maddest philoso?
phy. In these days of practical
scienco, what was theory of yesterday
is fact to-day, and all the old time
notions become as babbles in the
sun, and burst and break with every
breath we draw.
Let Archimedes shoulder his lever,
and we will find a resting place for it
to move the world. Let minc ancient
Medicos pant and toil no more for
the drugs he so sorely needs, for we
have them at our band, ever ready to
serve them at his beck.
Refined in the laboratory of Dr.
Maggie! the finest materials known
in the medical profession ave obtain?
able by any onje. His bilious, dys?
peptic and diarrhoea pills stand un?
rivalled, and his salve operates with
magical effect upon burns, scalds and
all sores and ulcers cd' the skin. In
fact, we think Maggiel's pills and
salve are the wonder of this century,
and we are happy in the thoght that
many others of our brethren of the
craft agree with us. Wc would ear?
nestly counsel that all families pro?
vide themselves with Dr. Maggiel's
preparations at once, and keep them
ready at hand, so as to use t in-in at
the nnyst opportune time and as oc?
cisi?n serves. -VnUvy -sV/iibiel
